Half-French and half-Swiss, Alain is Stat Wine's “number cruncher,” bringing with him an experience of statistics acquired during the many years he has spent in the world of finance. Alain started a well-known tasting group in the 80s, and pioneered the concept of wine bars in Geneva. His lifelong interest in Bordeaux makes him especially qualified to chart the development of the region's most famous wine estates.
